Our “Teddy Bear Clinic” is a free injury prevention program for children, sponsored by the Trauma Center at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital (SBC). This program is specifically designed for kindergarten or first grade students in Suffolk County. Program staff visit each individual classroom for about 40 minutes; 20 minutes for safety education and 20 minutes for Teddy Bear Clinic. We cover safety topics on car and helmet safety in a fun and interactive way before letting the children dress up as doctors and nurses and “take care” of their injured stuffed animals. Due to high demand, we offer programs on a first come, first serve basis. We will do our best to accommodate all requests. Please review our School Prep Guide before submitting a request.
To track requests in order received, and to assist with scheduling needs, all program requests beginning the fall of 2018 must be made through our online registration.
Thank you for your interest and we look forward to working with your school!

We prefer to schedule programs for the morning and finish before lunch, when possible. Each classroom runs about 40 mins. Special accommodations can be made to fit scheduling needs (combining classes, running 2 classes simultaneously, etc)
